and the president. big day for us here at cnn tomorrow. for now, let's go to wolf blitzer in "the situation room." wolf? >>> happening now, a grueling and very tight presidential race entering its final hours with the candidates campaigning right down to the wire. we're watching all of their final rallies. we're going to hear from president obama in ohio in a little while. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> it's election eve in america. 26 hours to go until the first polls close. as voters pick the next president of the united states. and the unparalleled coverage we've brought you all through the campaign certainly continues today. our cnn correspondents are trailing the candidates. they're diving into the issues. they're talking to voters in every critical battleground state as we count down these final hours to election day. let's begin our coverage this hour, covering mitt romney, the republican nominee is campaigning his way up the east coast today. his latest stop, virginia with 13 critically important electoral votes. president obama took them in 2008. president bush to
unprecedented growth of incarceration. >> this just in. cnn is reporting that president obama will win connecticut, delaware, the district of columbia, maine, three out of four electoral votes. romney will win oklahoma, in addition to what we have announced so far. we are going to turn and go to vermont, where we are joined by david, an independent journalist. he also happens to be my brother, but it is the first state in the country, vermont, that has been announced as going into the obama column. david, welcome back to democracy now!. it did this not happen in 2008, as well? >> yes. hi, amy. vermont was called within moments of polls close in, leading many of us to wonder what the methodology was, but in any case, we did just get the first numbers, and that is why happened with 2% of the precincts, with 70% obama and 28% romney. cbs has also called the races here for senate for senator bernie sanders. this is his reelection to the second term, and for the governor, and also the congressman peter. you are priced out of the market because there is no cap. there is no control, so becaus
down to the wire. cnn is covering their every move. our correspondents are in key locations in critical states. any one of which could ultimately decide who will be the next president of the united states. we're going to -- let's go to colorado right now. mitt romney is speaking there but jim acosta is there setting the stage. tell us what's going on. >> reporter: mitt romney just arrived here just a few moments ago. he has been delivering his closing argument to the crowd here and he's been doing that all day long. waking up in new hampshire, moving on to iowa and here in colorado for two stops. he has been going after the president on that new unemployment data, he has also been talking about what he would do if he's elected president. talking about cutting the budget, eliminating the president's health care law and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going after the president on this issue of bipartisanship. mitt romney is making the case that the president
it down and captured one of the pilots. this is amateur film. a cnn crew was just on the scene after the crash. rebels saying they also shot down a government helicopter yesterday. that captured on video. take a look. an opposition group posted its facebook page that the free syrian army brought down the helicopter with an anti aircraft weapon. we don't know what happened to the people who were actually on board that helicopter. we want to go straight to washington to listen to the president. he's now making a statement with middle class families talking about the importance of reaching a deal and not going over the so-called fiscal cliff. let's listen in. >> it would be good for our children's future and i believe that both parties can agree on a framework that does that in the coming weeks. in fact, my hope is to get this done before christmas. but the place where we already have, in theory at least, complete agreement, right now, is on middle class taxes. and as i've said before, we've got two choices. if congress does nothing, every family in america ll see their tacks automatica
. >> just to break in, one of the biggest swing states, nevada, abc and cnn have called that for president obama. this was not a surprise. the romney people were pessimistic about nevada, but it's just another example of how this very small map, surprisingly small map, is turning blue in state after state. >> right. again, and if as we keep trying to do throughout this night for our viewers on c-span2, folks at politico.com, is put all of this stuff in perspective of the things that we know on the presidential level, every single one of them has broken in the direction of the president. new hampshire, nevada, wisconsin, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania. every state that was plausibly up for grabs has gone to barack obama. an important note on that, almost everything we're seeing is breaking the way that public polling suggested it would. there was a big debate over the last month about whether or not media companies cooked the books on polls or whether or not people are just missing something in the electorate. what i've always told people about polls and i think it's proving out true ton
% of the popular vote. my personal guess, frankly -- >> he did go on cnn yesterday and said i was wrong. >> stephanie: wow! >> yeah, i hate to do this but i give credit to newt gingrich for walking it back. >> stephanie: well, what else can you do? >> well i know -- >> you cannot go on cnn. >> yeah peggy noonan isn't going anywhere to say i am wrong. >> i'm so upset about it i'm going to divorce my current wife. >> but newt gingrich is still looking for a job. it's awesome. >> stephanie: no, but that's what they were saying we have two sets of numbers now, and math, and they want -- it's almost like they were saying -- dick morris will still have a job because they just want people who will make them feel better. >> and i think they were trying to influence the outcome. >> stephanie: yeah. >> prognostication. >> stephanie: liam in denver. you are on with melissa and company. >> caller: good morning, stephanie. >> stephanie: good morning. >> caller: i was so happy that we won i was even happier to watch donald trump completely meltdown. >> stephanie: yes. >> caller:
will hear from you. we want to ask who you voted for and why and your reaction to the results. cnn a few minutes ago declared a hampshire for the president and its four key electoral votes. both with an eye on the electoral votes. this is the scene from the obama campaign headquarters in chicago. we are also in boston at romney headquarters. jill is on the phone, democrats, warren, pennsylvania. what was a light when he went to the polls today? caller: we vote in a very small town. i saw one of my former students. host: as the look of the results tonight, what do you think? caller: i see president obama all the way. as a teacher, this is fantastic. unions, we very strongly support president obama. host: jasmine from st. augustine, florida, republican line. caller: i voted early. this was my first year that i could actually vote. and i voted for romney. i voted for him because he is all about helping the middle- class and having small businesses. my fiancee and his father owned a small business. the democrats talk about how that are moving forward and i have not seen any forward progressi
struck by cnn found its groove but the message boards that if he wins on election night and you're looking for any race anywhere, you could find the information you're looking for. i was really struck a margaret hoover, a political columnist was so beautiful that people think you think wow, ishii spire. who are some of the people who are starting to blow you away where the institutions you thought really played a major role. >> i would say going back to the original theories, sasha eisenberg and his book, does it. he nailed a the same that this will calm down to turnout and techniques. so i gave him a line of credit. >> i'm afraid this might be a little controversial, but i say nate silver said. it was the year of the polls and he nailed it. on the political side, having covered ted cruz, i am really impressed and he's going to be a player. he can be a republican supreme court nominee if not a candidate for president or vice president. >> i don't think many people hurt that much. >> he now becomes the third former supreme court clerk. he was serving in the senate along with sena
was very struck that cnn found its groove with john kean and the message board. if you were looking for any race, anywhere, you could find the information you were looking for. i was struck by margaret hoover , a political columnist who is so beautiful youth is so smart and every time she speaks, you think is she's smart. who are some of the people starting to blow you away or the institutions you thought played a major role? >> i would say going back to my original theory -- sasha eisenberg and his book, the victory lap, he nailed it. he was saying it before anyone else, that this was going to come down to turnout and techniques and so i give him a lot credit. might beraid this controversial, but i think nate silver, since this was the year of the polls, he nailed it. on the political side, having covered ted crews, i'm really impressed, and he's going to be a player. he could be a republican supreme court nominee if not a candidate for president or vice president. >> i don't think many people have heard that much about them. >> he becomes the third former supreme court clerk to be serving
, and we don't know about virginia, of course. cnn had some exit polling. they're not making any going to s so i'm not repeat what they said but i would think if you're watching cnn you would be pleased by projections are in terms of the exit polls. >> the night is not over yet. stay with us. >> announcer: "your voice, your vote," election night 2012, live from times square, diane sawyer and george stephanopoulos. >> and good evening, once again, from here in times square, and it is the crossroads of the world, and it is election headquarters for election 2012. i am here at the big map to tell you we have three more projected winners to give you right now. from georgia, we are ready to project based on exit polls that governor romney has won in georgia which has voted republican six times in the last seven elections. alabama, down in the south again, governor romney has, once again, become the projected winner and in new jersey, president obama is the projected winner tonight. it was devastated, as you know, by that superstorm sandy and still awaiting word how many people in the storm zone
dominant that by the time john adams signed, john and cnn's becomes president, he's a democrat. he's completely left the federalist fold. the federalist party is essentially dead. what happened then was the rest of andrew jackson on the democratic arty, much more as we know it today and became for a little while a single party except there were those in the country who are really opposed to jackson and this became the assets of the whig party. it wasn't so much a political party as an anti-jackson party and the whigs came along and henry clay perhaps, if we want to talk about forgotten people from an 18th century, henry clay isn't so much forgotten, but overlooked because he never became president. perhaps the most prominent american at this time he didn't become president. since from the subject of elections and scandal, there is a pamphlet produced when henry clay was running against james polk and said 21 reasons why henry clay should not be elected. reason number two was he spends his days at the gaming tables and his nights at the brothel. so anyone who still thinks it was nic
of obama speeches and 49 minutes of romney, cnn. >> that's fair. >> numbers have a liberal bias. shapes and letters. >> in hollywood brad pitt is an actor, director, political activist, cologne marketer and now a furniture designer. architectural digest reports he has teamed up with frank pillar row to design a dozen high-end furniture pieces including tables, chairs and a bed and he's been doodling ideas for furniture for years now. he's putting the drawings to work. the bed is a big one. it will fit his and angelina jolie's entire family all of them. two of them and all six of their children. >> how many electoral votes is that? >> bill: what i'm looking forward to. a brad pitt bed. so your prediction again is barack obama -- >> 303 electoral votes. >> bill: that seems to be the magic number. politico that's what they're predicting. that's what i'm predicting. peter came up with 303. we should tell people, we've got the big -- "huffington post" has a great interactive map that you can pick your states. h
. i just happened to catch the comments he made on cnn last night. he was very grateful to the tennis feeding vehicles he had seen just after his press conference. -- the 10 vehicles. we appreciate any out reached to let people know what we are working on in staten island. we are in tottenville, hugenot, and we are all over there. we're continuing to build on that. again, a quick summary. in new york, a massive feeding effort under way on long island with fixed feeding sites in nassau and sussex with more coming. s.i., queens, brooklyn, the bronx, manhattan, and the two on long island. 40 shelters, but i think you are most concerned with beating capacity. -- feeding capacity. we have already shipped 307,000 meals into new york. for new jersey, we also have 30 shelters open in the garden state and we have four mobile kitchens that are capable of 80,000 meals per day with another 350,000 ready-to-eat meals already there. both cases include kosher meals. there are disturbing food as well. we are stealing of the full resources of our feeding capabilities in all of the impacted states. >>
is that the republicans now that he got reelectedded. >> suarez: they are just responding to cnn's projection of obama as the winner of the next election. rahm emmanuel, i guess this is a vindicating moment for you, huh? >> not for me. it's a labor of love for my friend and our president. a labor of love. i have to tell you the mayor said to me just before we go on the air, i have to go back to my wife when the president is declared. i'm sorry you're still here with me but we're almost done. what does this change? >> given the candidates could not have been different clearer about their differences for the country and the direction, you have probably some areas where there's more energy for the president than there was in '08. the american people are ready for his leadership, his policy directives. he wants the republicans to work with him. you cannot continue to obstruct and take immigration reform. the republicans stay on the course of obstruction, they will be a minority party nationally. it's wrong for the country and wrong for them politically. >> suarez: mayor rahm emmanuel of chicago thanks for
. perhaps you'd like to share with us your thoughts, your experience. did i see you on cnn one night as you were working with your constituents, trying to meet the disaster in your area. mr. pallone: i want to thank my colleague from california for having this special order and talking about the hurricane damage and what needs to be done in the future. i have to say that the damage to my district was catastrophic . we had many towns where initially at least it looked like the majority of the homes and businesses were wiped out. now, when we go back and look again, some of them can be saved. but we're talking about thousands of people who lost their homes and many of others who lost their businesses. it really created a humanitarian crisis in that first week or so because we were trying to get fema in with the disaster recovery centers and with the red cross and the salvation army. and really over the first week the main concern was just humanitarian, trying to find shelter for people, trying to make sure they had food and water and clothes. but i have to say the response was overwhelming. s

[applause] >> by way of beginning, last night, we were sitting up late talking about today's talk. you are quoted in it. gosh, i don't have a copy of it. magically, there was a copy. i went to the page. it was called "touring dixie with lbj." written may 10, 1964. this was meant to be. here are the opening lines about lbj in which lynda is featured later in the column. touring the south with president johnson is like going back to the old evangelical chautauqua circuit.
